Not sure if this is the right section. I've done about 6 tests now and have came to the conclusion I must be pregnant. 4 positives, 2 I think I flooded.

What do I do now, how do I go about making a doctors appointments etc?

Many congratulations! I would ring your GP's surgery, explain that you've just found out that you're pregnant, and ask when they would like you to make your first appointment. They will ask you how far along you are, and you calculate your pregnancy from the first day of your last menstrual period. So if your last period started six weeks ago, you're six weeks pregnant (even though that isn't when you actually conceived).

In the meantime, have a look at the NHS website, and this website, for advice on what you need to do to be looking after yourself, what foods to avoid, reassurance about what symptoms you might get. And if you're not already, start taking folic acid. Other than that, sit back and relax! Take care x
